Karen has worked with students of different calibre, such as Dyslexia and other co-morbidities like SLI and ADHD. Karen has several years of management experience, one of which was in running the DAS centres. Her passion for teaching saw her contributing to curriculum development in the initial years as a curriculum team developer with both the Literacy and Math programmes, organizing holiday enrichment workshops for students and attending overseas conferences.
